Would You Try These Apple Pie Tic Tacs?

Well, well, well. What do we have here?
It seems every brand out there wants to cash in on the autumnal season by offering customers fall-flavored treats for a limited time.
We get it: pumpkin spice lattes are delicious, and we’re not mad about the sudden influx of cinnamon-gingerbread-nutmeg-all-spice-flavored treats on the market. In fact, we ourselves are guilty of tweaking some of our favorite cookie recipes to include a little bit of a pumpkin kick, just to get us in the Halloween spirits.
However, we’re not so sure how we feel about the newest Tic Tac flavor on the market. The folks over at The Impulsive Buy have spotted apple pie-flavored Tic Tacs on grocery shelves, available for a limited time, and we’re finding the entire concept kind of odd.
Now, typically apple pie is treated as a dessert, and not necessarily as a flavor used to make your breath fresh and minty. But we’re open to the possibility that maybe this is one of those don’t-knock-it-till-you-try-it concepts? Hopefully?
Perhaps they work — after all, we’re big fans of the classic orange flavor, which always seemed a little more sweet than minty now that we think about it. Some of Tic Tac’s more sugary offerings really haven’t been half bad.
What do you think. Are YOU going to try the new apple pie flavor?Apple pie, breath mint, limited time, Tic Tacs
Homer Simpson-Style Doughnut Tic Tacs? Great Idea! (Video)

Remember when Ferrero, parent company of Tic Tacs, came out with limited-edition, minion-themed banana Tic Tacs? It was in July of 2015, and they were a big hit.
It turns out Ferrero is at it again with creating yellow character-themed candies. This time, they are stamped with the faces of Homer, Marge and Bart Simpson (video below).
As a bonus, they each feature the flavors that represent them best: Marge’s flavor is blueberry, in order to pay tribute to her blue hair of course; Bart’s flavor is bubble gum; and Homer’s flavor, probably the tastiest one, is doughnut. Doughnut Tic Tacs!
Of course, fans are going crazy for this new specialty. They are even creating unboxing videos left and right, to showcase the product to those of us who may have a hard time finding it:
Unfortunately, that’s probably a lot of us. The Simpsons Tic Tacs aren’t available in the United States, and according to Delish, Ferrero has confirmed that there aren’t any plans to bring them here, either. They are available in France, the United Kingdom, Austria and Italy.
So, you can either try to have them sent from there or you can go the eBay route. If neither of those options work for you, then you’ll just have to settle for watching the unboxing video over and over. And maybe eat a doughnut for the full effect.
Still, you have to admit they are pretty cute.
And check out Bart’s Tic Tac face:
Who knows, maybe Ferrero will change their minds. In the meantime, let’s just be happy to know that these exist.Simpsons, Tic Tacs
